Self-raising flour

175g

Cocoa powder

2½tbsp

Bicarbonate of soda

1tsp

Caster sugar

100g

Light soft brown sugar

50g

Eggs

2

Corn or sunflower oil

150ml

Milk

150ml

Vanilla extract

2tsp

Dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids)

125g

You will also need…

20x28cm (8x11in) cake tin, lined with baking parchment

Step 1 of 7

Preheat the oven to 180°C, (160°C for fan ovens), Gas Mark 4.

Step 2 of 7

Sift the flour, cocoa and bicarbonate of soda into a bowl and stir in the sugar, mix well.

Step 3 of 7

In a jug measure the oil and milk, then add the eggs, one teaspoon of vanilla and mix together with a fork until combined. Beat two tablespoons of the caramel in a separate cup or bowl until smooth and whisk into the egg and oil mixture.

 

Step 4 of 7

Combine the wet with the dry ingredients and mix well. The cake mix will be quite wet. Pour the mixture into the tin and bake in the centre of the oven for 20-25 minutes until springy to the touch.

Step 5 of 7

Cool the cake in the tin and then turn out onto a wire rack. Remove the baking paper and cool completely.

Step 6 of 7

Melt the chocolate in short bursts in the microwave, stirring until smooth. Add the remaining caramel and vanilla to the chocolate and beat well until smooth and glossy. 

Step 7 of 7

Place the cake onto a plate, spread with the frosting - you can leave to just the top or cover the top and sides completely. Leave to set and cut into slices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and delicious Had all of the ingredients so decided to have a go at this recipe. I was sceptical having seen all of the oil and milk in the ingredients list, needn’t have been as the cake is delicious, moist and super light. The frosting wasn’t too sweet at all, will definitely make again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than shop brought So I brought all the ingredients to make this myself, but my 16yr old son decided that he wanted to make it himself. I have to say, not only did this look good but it smelled and tasted awesome It's not too sweet or chewy, it's just right. Chocolatey and morish

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly easy with brilliant results Great recipe. No need for creaming or even beaters you just need a spatula or spoon to mix the wet and dry ingredients together. Ready in no time. Sponge is rich and chocolatey, very moist yet surprisingly light texture. The topping is amazing. Proper chocolate fudge. So many "fudge cakes" are topped with what is basically a buttercream but this is dark chocolate and caramel. Absolutely delicious. This will be my go to birthday cake recipe from now on! My 4 year old enjoyed making it and you can decorate it with anything you like. We did choc buttons, smarties and sprinkles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick and easy to make I thought I would give this recipe a go as I had all the ingredients in the cupboard. It was so quick to make up and pop in the oven. Made the frosting while the sponge was cooking...that was delicious! Couldn’t wait to put it all together. Honestly was so moist and chocolatey and even better with a splash of double cream.
